r=eatures Police IDicer Helps Youngster To Receive A New Bicycle BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Last Saturday, Jeremiah Fields, and his father, Jerry Fields, were among several residents who volunteered to build a new playground at Ragan Park. Jeremiah rode the bicycle his dad had just purchased for him. However, while Jeremiah and the others were helping with the playground, someone stole his bicycle. Fields, who works out of the Labor Pool had saved money to buy the used bicycle so that his son could ride it to school. After they discovered the bicycle was gone, Fields re ported it to the police and Officer Keith Padellero took the report. Major Gerald Honeywell said, "After taking the report, Officer Padellero felt compelled to do some thing for the child. He called his supervisor who in turn called me asking how we can help this kid. I told her let's put our money together and buy him a bike. Vanguard Law Firm On hand to witness Jeremiah receive his new bicycle were on the front row: Frank Marsalisi, Arthenia Joyner, both Vanguard Attorneys; Ms. Janette Schuler, Jeremiah's stepmother; Jeremiah Fields, Attorney Carlton, of Vanguard Attorneys; and Tampa Police Officer Keith Padellero. Shown on the back row are Officer Kristina Duran, Sgt. Calvin Johnson, and Jerry Fields, Jeremiah's father. heard about the story and wanted to assist ," Major Honeywell said.

... 0 Mavor Buckhorn Visits With The A Mistake In Spelling Sentinel Bulletin Editorial Board 11 Woman's Name Becomes NI-Uhtmare balance. Then he smiled and And then there were his reu. Accompanied by his two top assistants, Mayor Bob Buckhorn paid the Sentinel Editorial Board a visit just the other day to talk about what has everyone a-buzz: the pro posed City budget. To the tune of $804.4 mil lion of which nearly $9 million is in reserves and an es timated $300 million will be used for deyelopment, what impressed our editorial board immedi atel y was Mayor Buckhorn's decision not to cut jobs. Somehow during these close depression tim e s, the Buckhorn admini s tration has f ound a wa y to do away with alread y v acant posi t ions leav ing the bread and butter of city employees unsliced. Still resembling a middle u. aged Jimmy Cagney, wear e ing a conservative suit and striped tie Mayor Buck-horn seemed quite at home as he lounged in a leather easy chair and began to discuss not W only the nuts and bolts of the budget, but began to share his a:> vision of a city and a city's fuW ture he, no doubt, has cher> ished for years.

So, I had to inspire employees out of this debacle" ("debacle": meaning defeat, over throw, or "trouncing." Now, there's a word you don t hear everyday). But our meeting was just beginning. Mayor Buckhorn wasted no time in tear ing into the intricacies of the City s budget as if it were a goldmine he d discovered the previous evening Yet, in the midst of dollars and cents he took time to say There s an electricity about Tampa that hasn t existed for a long time." Mayor Buckhorn was also quick not to take all the credit for the progress of a city that, if all goes well during the upcoming Republican Na tional Convention, will finally have achieved that world class status it has always courted. Said the mayor, 'We've got a whole new team that isn't fighting over the old stuff,;, re ferring to the new County Ad ministrator and 3 new County Commissioners and its chair; Port Authority and Aviation Authority heads, which en compass other municipalities throughout Tampa Bay.

Once again, what began with a roar, ended with a yawn. Throughout voting precincts, volunteers privately admitted, they had time to do their nails, read a book, call their grandchildren, and do everything, but process people to vote. Was it the volunteers' fault? Certainly, they had been adequately trained to do their jobs. So, what was the problem? Simply put, the people didn't come. Where were prospective voters? They were at home and still asleep. They were busily manning a 9-to-sjob. They were waiting for their Social Security check to come in the mail. They were walking a pit bull pup who liked to take long strolls through a park that was not near any polling place. In essence, the people who should have taken time out to vote, to vote on Saturday, or even to send absentee votes were somewhere, doing some-thing that had nothing whatsoever to do with the bloodstained, hard-earned, inalienable and Constitutional right to place a ballot. And then there were the arrogant -ignorant those pigheaded, proud-to-be-stupid men and women who for the price of pudding would proudly give a dissertation on why voters were fools and the right to vote was a Communist plot. So, you see, State Republicans had little to fear about the so-called nemesis of public voting power. In truth, or at least in survey, it either was asleep or simply didn't exist. And what do we have to show for our stupidity? The answer is quite simple. For those of us who did not vote, we shall be besieged by the same rascals who have ridden our backs for the past two-to-four years. Once again, our best and brightest are overlooked. But like all mules, donkeys, and other beasts ofburden, perhaps, we are used to such political saddling by now. Why else would we have stayed at home? America's Economv: Who's Reallv To Blame;a D id you ever get slapped for something your brother, or sister did? Even now, many years later, you remember the sting of that hard knock as if it happened just a second ago, don't you? Equally so, you remember having to clean up after your brother or sister for the mess he or she made, to your helpless and great chagrin. Well, imagine how President Barack Obama must feel at the end of a day about certain Americans' anger toward him because he was either unable to deliver or create (as of yet) millions of jobs expected by an unemployed multitude. Seemingly, people have forgotten all about another man whose name was George W. Bush, and about the financial catastrophe he "left behind" when he humbly took his leave from the office of President. And if they have forgotten about "G. W.," then maybe, they've also had a lapse of memory about the de-regulation of banking, investment, and mortgage industries that made financial executives on Wall Street resemble the Dalton gang at the OK Corral. But while you're remembering, also recall how you used to argue with your brother or sister about his or her making a mess for you to clean up, in the first place. Then think how President Obama must argue and cajole with a Republican Congress and governors to get anything or do anything positive for American people only to have his Republican cohorts to turn-round and accuse President Obama of not doing the very same thing they would not allow him to do. According to one Nobel Prize-winning economist, America's sluggish economy was brought on mainly by the growing inequality of wealth in the United States." But we think racism and brick throwing are the real problems. I am not the same person I was five years ago. If someone asked, I would consider myself a mere shadow of the individ ual I was 10 years ago. And when I think back to the 16year-old I was 24 years ago, forget about it I don't even know that kid. Everything about me has changed. The way I look, the way I see the world, the way I act, even my taste in women has evolved ("redbones" are pretty, but not necessarily top shelf) That being the case, what sense does it make a per son to judge me today for any thing they knew about me then? The same could be said for anyone. Human beings are constantly in a state of transi tion. Our environment dictates our behavior. And as it changes, we change, grow and adapt. We make mistakes. We learn from those mistakes. We try not to repeat the process of making those same mistakes. At least that's how it's sup posed to work. I couldn t help but be re minded of this when I read the story of Jere Walker. Here is a man who was given 5 life sentences at 17. An age that, under the current law, a per son is not considered competent enough to vote, buy alcohol or drive. I don't know much about Mr. Walker or the particu lars of his case. But from what I have been able to piece to gether, it sounds like he was a young kid who got caught up with some older individuals and ended up participating in an outrageous crime spree that involved several armed rob beries and a sexual assault. For the record, I don't condone Mr. Walker's crimes. In fact, I doubt that he would even attempt to justify his own actions on that night over two decades ago. But, the truth is, as horrible as his criminal in fractions are perceived, he didn't kill anybody. Regardless of how trauma tized his victims may still be, they survived their violent en counter with Mr. Walker./ And according to a recent Supreme Court judgment, juveniles cannot be given life sentences for crimes that do not result in death What the justices are say ing with this ruling is that, re gardless of the crime children who do not commit murder should not be thrown away forever In other words, a child is salvageable. In a perfect world where justice is truly blind and ad ministered without prejudice, this new reading of law would mean that Mr, Walker could have his sentence commuted to the nearly 25 years he' s al ready served. A fair term that would ad dress the serious nature of his crime, but also adhere to what the Supreme Court intended by allowing former impres sionable juvenile offenders to re-enter society. But this isn't a perfect world. It is a vindictive, unre lenting one. And since Mr. Walker's victims included a former judge and several other prominent members of the community, the court respon sible for his re sentencing de cided to tailor the Supreme Court's decision to fit their agenda. Of course, the judge as signed to the case, the Honorable Debra Behnke, followed the letter of the law and commuted Walker's sen tence. But, she did it on terms that not only set a precedent for other juveniles seeking re lief, but to let others know that by no means did the new rul ing have a dulling effect on the hammer of justice in Hillsbo rough County. N 0 .... N By taking away Walker's 5 life sentences and replacing them with a 100-year sentence made up of two consecutive 30-year sentences and an ad ditional 40-year sentence, she made sure that ifW alker ever got out of prison, he would have out lived the greatest of expectations. It is obvious that this is not what the Supreme Court in0 tended to happen with their :!! decision. But, since sentencing 15 and 16-year-olds to the cenen tury mark leaves, at least, the m plausibility of a potential release, a loophole exists that z will continue the excessive m punishment of juvenile offend1 ers. Many of whom will continue to-be minorities. r As the ultimate victims of h; ..... their own crimes, I can't help but have some sympathy for Z "U men like Walker whose poor c decisions as a youth still haunt m r him well into adulth9od. His (i; dilemma should act as a re:I: minder and a wakeup call for all who would dare follow in m his footsteps. < It just reinforces that old saying. "God forgives. Hanging < judges don't."

City Council on Thursday addressed the issues concerning the Voice of Freedom Park in West Tampa The park is privately owned by businessman, Joe Redner, who has allowed the Occupy Tampa Group to use it as a camp site. After numerous complaints from some busi ness owners in the area, a pe tition was circulated. That petition was presented to the Council a week ago. Last week, Redner an nounced that he had given the group until September 15th to leave the park. Councilwoman Yolie Capin, however, felt the group should leave sooner, and asked the city's legal staff could something be done in the area 0 of zoning violations to get the a: group to leave now.

"I' rode through the area at night with a TPD Officer, as far up as the Hollywood Nights Club, and I always see large groups of people in the streets." Main Street business owner, Bernard Jordan, told Council members that he is aware of the crowds gather ing in the streets, and feels the fact that are not patronizing his businesses is detrimental. Council members decided to hold a workshop on the problem before a final decision is made, and invited Redner and Jordan to attend the workshop. Councilman Frank Reddick said it was hard for him to sit and listen to the comments of his colleagues without blowing his top. "I am very upset and disap pointed with my colleagues. I think they are very insensitive to the needs of the people of West Tampa. I'm offended by comments made by woman Capin about street parties and sidewalk barbecue grills. "It appears when my col leagues need the votes of the people in West Tampa, they show so much concern. But when the people need them, they turn their backs. Councilman Reddick also said out of respect, he feels if Councilwoman Capin is to ride through his district at night, she should let him know about it. "I think Capin's remarks were out ofline, and she didn't put a lot of thought into her comments before she let them out during our meeting. "As far as the city accom modating the protestors ex pected to come to the park, I think Redner should do that since they are using his park. ---OPEN HOUSE---MONDAY, AUGUST 20, 2012 5 P.M. 7 P.M.

Obama's campaign Is likelv To overcome Voting Laws A judge in Pennsylvania up held a new voter ID law in the state on Wednesday, dealing a blow to liberal groups and De mocrats who had argued it imposes an unfair burden on many potential voters But the provision in Penn sylvania and others around the country, which Attorney General Eric Holder has likened to poll taxes, may not actually be a huge threat to Pres. Obama's chances of winning reelection, despite Democratic concerns that mi norities disproportionately don't have photo ID's. Why not?

(In fact, despite one of these laws, Pres. Obama was the first Democrat in a generation to win in Indiana, suggesting strong Democratic enthusiasm can overcome them. His poll numbers have declined so much in Hoosier State that Pres. Obama's campaign has largely written off the state.)

Local Tampa Housing CEO To Meet With Belmont Heights Estates Managers BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Tampa Housing Authority CEO, Jerome Ryans, said it is routine for his office to meet with the managers of Belmont Heights Estates every month. However, Ryans said he is setting up a meeting with the managers to address c om plaints about Y o u Tube fights occurring in o r near the com plex. "My offic e h a s re ceived complaints about these inci dents, and I want to address them directly with the man agers. "We've asked the property managers at our public hous ing complexes to be on con stant vigilance for these incidents. People need to know we take these fights seriously and their residency could be affected if the y or their chil dren are involved. Ryans said he s personally witnessed some of thes e filmed fights and he doesn t understand how anyone could jeopardize their shelter over something so sill y "The fights seem to occur more in our larger develop ments. They also occur just be yond the boundaries of our properties, but close enough to JEROME RYANS T.H.A.CEO get the people who live in pub lic housing involved." Ryans said what' s also shocking is the majority of the perpetrators of the fights are females. "We've even received re ports of adult women getting involved, fighting teenage girls over something as silly as a boyfriend or something some one said. "Whatever the reasons are for these fights, we will not tol erate these activities Ryans said also as far as Belmont Heights Estates is concerned, he wants to ad dress the high turnover rate among managers at the com plex. "Although we hear this is Child Eiected From Car In Crash On Tuesday at 5 p m. Tampa Fire Rescue units were called to the scene of an accident on Hillsborough Avenue near 43rd Street.

Asteausuainzarra was also hospitalized, but no information was released on his condition. Tampa General Hospital did not release any information on the current status of the children or their mother. common with management companies in the private sec tor, it can also be very disrup tive, said Ryans. "You need to have longevity and establish rela tionships with the residents. Whoever the manager is, they need to get familiar with the residents and pass out busi ness cards. It s absolutely crit ical they make themselves available to the residents all the time Ryans said residents need to call his office about any problems they are having with management. en I also think it's vital they get out in the field and knock ondoors.

20 At-Risk Youth Graduate From LeadershiP camp Former graduates heading off to college are (from left to right) Shaleedah Salaam, Jakkar LaMerria Robinson, 7, stands with Mayor Bob Buckhorn and Haughbrook, and Maria Carlyle. Police Chief Jane Castor. BY LEON B. CREWS 0 Sentinel Staff Writer a: On Friday, August 10th, 20 z at-risk youth in the Sulphur c( Springs area graduated from the Tampa Police Leadership 0 Camp. Mayor Bob Buckhorn ::) and Tampa Police Chief tJane Castor were there to ii: present diplomas to disad W vantaged youth 7 to 16 years old who successfully complet ed a week long leadership camp hosted by TPD s Resources In Community Hope House (R.I.C.H.) in Sulphur Springs. At the camp, police officers and volunteers guided the children through an interac tive curriculum that is geared towards teaching the at-risk youth how to make positive choices and avoid conflict and drugs. The adult role models also took the children on vari ous outings to teach them the importance of giving back to their community. Also at the graduation were three volunteer mentors, who were former leadership camp graduates and will be heading off to college this year. Debbie Boles, who has been director of R.I.C.H House for 10 years, said she's happy to see their long effort result in a generational shift. "I feel like a proud mom of these kids. When I first start ed, I saw a community in despair with no hope and kids aimlessly wandering the streets looking for something to connect to." Boles said she deals with about 100 kids a day, along with their parents, and the interaction with the parents has improved tremendously. "I believe that changing the direction of the children helps them and their parents "After spending 26 years in law enforcement and patrolling the Robles Park area, I got a direct insight into some of the problems families face in that community. I began to see what a difference the right resources would make." Boles said she spends so much time at the shelter, the children and some of the offi cers think she lives there. "Over the 10 years I've been here, I've grown right along with the program. Today, I have a better understanding of the needs of this communi ty." This year's graduates are: I'Kerria Love, Sha'Miya Robinson, La'Merria Robinson, La'Vondra Dennis, Devin Johnson, Elijah Johnson, Eric Dorriety, Dillan Dorriety, J ayqwan Hall, Antwan Banks, Urtorio Brown, Uromeo Brown, Urick Brown, Javier Berroto, Joshua Newman, Carl Pressley, Nikya Bing, Alec Arnold, Kendrick Daniels, Trevon Roberts, and Mikesha Redden.

I took His hand when I heard Him call; I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way; I found that place at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remem bered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss; ah yes, these things, I too, will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow; I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I savored much; good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief; don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me; God wanted me now, He set me free. Love, Patricia, mom, dad, daughter, sisters and broth ers. MR.

FYI PART IV Third, language in the Fair Sentencing Act implies that Congress intended to follow the Sentencing Reform Act's special back ground principle here. Section 8 of the Fair Sentencing Act requires the Commission to promulgate conforming amendments to the Guidelines that achieve consistency with other guideline provisions and applicable law." Read most naturally, "applicable law" refers to the law as changed by the Fair Sentencing Act, including the provision reducing the crack mandatory minimums. And consistency with "other guideline provi sions" and with prior. Commission practice would require application of the new Guidelines amendments to offenders who committed their offense before the new amendments' effective date but were sentenced thereafter. Fourth, applying the 1986 Drug Act's old mandatory minimums to the postAugust 3 sentencing of preAugust 3 offenders would create sentencing disparities of a kind that Congress enacted the Sentencing Reform Act and the Fair Sentencing Act to prevent. Fifth, not to apply the Fair Sentencing Act would do more than preserve a disproportionate status quo; it would make matters worse by creating new anomalies new sets of disproportionate sentences not previously present. That is because sentencing courts must apply the new Guidelines (consistent with the Fair Sentencing Act's new mini mums) to pre-Act offenders, and the 1986 Drug Act's old minimums would trump those new Guidelines for some pre-Act offenders but not for all of them. Application of the 1986 Drug Act minimums to preAct offenders sentenced after the new Guidelines take effect .would therefore produce a set of sentences at odds with Congress' basic efforts to create more uniform, more proportionate sentences Sixth, this Court has found no strong countervailing considerations that would make a critical difference. Pp.1019. (b) The new Act's lower mi.nimums also apply to those who committed an offense prior to August 3 and were sentenced between that date and November 1, 2010, the effective date of the new Guidelines. The Act simply instructs the Commission to promulgate new Guidelines "as soon as practicable (but no later than 90 days after the Act took effect), and thus as far as Congress was concerned the Commission might have promulgated those Guidelines to be effec tive as early as August 3. In any event, courts, treat ing the Guidelines as advi sory, possess authority to sentence in accordance with the new minimums. Finally, applying the new minimums to all who are sentenced after August 3 makes it possible to foresee a reasonably smooth transi tion, and this Court has no reason to believe Congress would have wanted to impose an unforeseeable, potentially complex applica tion date. Pp. 1920. School Buses To Make Practice Run On Monday, August 20th, the Hillsborough County School District will have a practice run.

This will allow them the opportu nity to find out if there are any glitches and correct them before school begins. Transportation General Manager John Franklin wants to test the system under the actual conditions during the early morning and mid-afternoon traffic. The bus drivers will follow real-time conditions at every stop The drivers will activate the stop arm, the flashing lights, and opening and closing of the doors. Motorists are reminded to compl y with an laws related to school buses. The first day of school for Hillsborough County students is Tuesday, August 21St. Currently, there are 1,ooo buses that transport students to and from schools within the Hillsborough County School District. Drivers transport approximately 91,000 students each day. Florida's Faultv No-Fault svstem Part II The highlights of the new law include: Auto accident victims must seek medical care or treatment from a qualified medical provider within 14 days of the crash or else PIP will not provide any medical benefits. We all know that many people try to "tough it out" hoping that their pain will just resolve itself with out a doctor. Sometimes it does, but under this law those who ignore their pain may find that they waited too long, and are just left to go home and suffer with no help. PIP will only pay up to $2,500 in medical benefits unless the patient has an "Emergency Medical Condition." To qualify for the full $10,ooo in medical benefits, the auto accident victim must suffer symptoms severe enough to indi cate that the lack of immediate medical attention could put the victim's health in serious jeopardy damage bodily functions, or cause a body part or organ to stop working properly. That means that most people are only going to have $2,500 dollars of insurance for routine follow up treatment, and that usually is just not enough. Treatments like massage therapy and acupuncture are no longer covered, which is ironic since recent studies have showed these can be at least as effective in treating soft tissue injuries as conventional (meaning expensive) medical treatments. In exchange for this bail out at consumers' expense, insurance carriers are sup posed to reduce PIP premi ums by a whopping 10 per cent by this October, and 25 percent by 2014. The bottom line from all these changes is that we cannot count on the no-fault system for basic benefits any longer. It is therefore more important than ever for accident victims to seek guidance from a competent, experienced attorney right away after an accident.

But, candy, chips and other junk foods displace a lot of the healthier foods in a child's diet. And unfortunately, school lunch programs aren't doing enough to bridge the nutri tion gap. A daily multi-vitamin is more than just a safety net for occasional nutritional mishaps. Please note that high doses of supplemental vita mins and minerals are gen erally not necessary for kids, but a good multi-vitamin I mineral designed for them is all they need. But, watch out for artificial colors, sweeteners and preservatives, as well as added sugar. Miuhtv Magnesium Magnesium is essential to every single organ in the body. It's needed for: Strong bones and teeth, It helps maintain muscle and nerve function, It supports a healthy im mune system and steady heart rhythm, It regulates blood sugar and promotes optimal blood pressure, and It contributes to energy metabolism and protein syn thesis. Include plenty of dark green, leafy veggies in your menu, along with whole grains and nuts. Magnesium can also en hance other conditions, like: Childhood obesity and Type 2 Diabetes, Asthma Depression and anxiety, Attention Deficit Disor der (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disor der (ADHD), and Autism. Other benefits of magne sium include: lower risk of allergies, better long-term memory and a greater learn ing ability Magnesium is very impor tant for children. The recom mended daily guidelines are: Ages 1-3 need 40-80 mg. Ages 4-8 need 130 mg. Ages 9-13 need 240 mg. Teen girls need 360 mg. Teen boys need 410 mg. Supplements Our Children Need Fruits and veggies provide an array of vitamins and minerals that are essential for your child s growth and overall health But, very few children ac tually meet the recom:. mended intake for fruits and veggies, so your child may be coming up short. Here are a few things that can help. Calcium Calcium contributes to many functions in the body and is essential for develop ing and maintaining strong bones. Calcium is also needed for healthy teeth, muscle func tion: Children ages 4-8 need Boo milligrams a day and children 9-18 need up to 1,300 milligrams daily. Be sure to balance calcium intake with adequate magne sium. Children and teens need between 130-410 of magnesium daily VitaminD Vitamin D is necessary for absorption of calcium for maximum bone growth and strength. Vitamin D also boosts the immune system and may guard against certain dis eases, including cancer. Children and teens need at least 6oo IU per day. Potassium Potassium is a mineral that helps to ensure normal heart and muscle function and plays a major role in en ergy production. Potassium is also needed for strong bones. Potassium is found in many fresh fruits, veggies and whole grains. Omega3s Omega 3s are essential fatty acids found in fish (tuna and salmon) and in certain plant foods like flaxseeds and walnuts. Omega 3s held boost chil dren's IQ and they will also have fewer learning and be havioral problems. Zinc Zinc is an important component of the immune system and is found in meat, fish, poultry, legumes and whole grains.

Unpasteurized apple cider vinegar, taken with meals, fires-up digestive juices. 5 Benefits 01 Raw Foods And Juicing 1. You get plenty of antiox idants. That's because the main components of this diet are fruits and veggies packed with antioxidants, sub stances _that help protect your cells from damage. 2. It aids in digestion. Raw food fans believe that eating whole, unadulterated food packed with enzymes will allow your body to cleanse it self. And any diet based on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains is good for your diges tive tract, helping to prevent constipation, and possibly reducing your risk of condi tions such as diverticulitis and diabetes. 3 It has heart benefits. The raw food way of eating is high in fiber and low in satu rated fats, and this has been shown to reduce your choles terol and your risk of heart disease. Also, raw foods are high in antioxidants and magnesium, and low in sodium-adding up to more good news for your heart. 4 You'll likely lose weight. Counting calories with raw foods and juice is not equiv alent to the calories you count on a traditional diet of cooked and/ or processed foods. Nothing is wasted, as the body knows how to as similate all the calories in raw live foods, whereas a regular diet of 2,000 calories for example, might only have about 1,200 useable calories and the rest is "wasted" or stored as fat. 5 It may help you quit smoking. You may find after following a raw foods diet that you don't want to put "bad" or unhealthy products back into your system. A raw foods diet that incorporates BluePrintCleanse juices for a prolonged length of time might help resolve all kinds of habits: smoking, alcohol, even nail biting. (By the way, these are usually symptoms of a pH imbalance, or rather, being too acidic). Your Familv's linle Secret ... Diabetes; Diabetes is a serious problem within the African-American com munity, but there is good news. A study, the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), proved that Type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed in those at high risk for the disease. Knowing the health history of your siblings, parents, grandparents and other relatives is important because it gives you and your health care team information about your risk for developing health problems, such as type 2 di abetes. You can't change your family history, but knowing about it can help you work with your health care team to take action on things you can change. Studies have shown that you can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes by losing 5 to 7 percent of your weight, if you are overweight-that's 10 to 14 pounds if you weigh 200 pounds. You can lose weight by walking 30 minutes a day for five days a week and choosing healthy foods lower in fat and calories. Ask Around Talk to your relatives to find out if anyone has dia betes. If you have been diag nosed with diabetes, tell your family. Update your health care team on your family history Talk to your health care team about whether you should be screened for dia betes. It is important to find out early if you have diabetes so you can take steps to man age the disease. People who keep their blood glucose (sugar) as close to normal as possible in the early years after they are diagnosed with diabetes have fewer pro blems with their eyes, nerves, and kidneys, and fewer heart attacks later in life. Make A Healthy Eating Plan The plan should in clude: 1. Eating a variety of colorful fruits and veg etables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products. 2. Choosing lean meats, poultry without the skin, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts. 3 Foods low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt and added sugars. Get Moving Make physical activity a family affair. Go for a walk, or play soccer, basketball, or tag with your children. Try swimming, biking, hiking, jogging, or any activity that you enjoy. Vary your activi ties so you don't get bored Make as family plan to work together to prevent or delay Type 2 diabetes. If someone in your family has diabetes, ask how family members can support them.

Rep. Paul Ryan's controversial plans to overhaul Medicare and cut trillions of dollars from social programs. The debate moves across five swing states as both cam paigns operate at full strength for a second day.

Jesse Jackson Jr., a Chicago Democrat who took a hushed medical leave two months ago, is being treated for bipolar disorder, the Mayo Clinic announced. The Rochester, Minn.-based clinic specified his condition as Bipolar II, which is defined as periodic episodes of depres sion and hypomania, a less se rious form of mania.
